Martin Zandvliet’s powerful, compassionate film – part anti-war essay, part gripping thriller – is based on a little-known true story and explores the grey area between justice and vengeance. Spring 1945: as German forces depart Denmark after occupation, veteran sergeant Carl Rasmussen (Roland Møller) and young German prisoners under his command are assigned to clear millions of land mines along the coast. The prisoners, mostly teenagers conscripted by the Nazis, must operate in incredible and horrifying danger to gain a chance at freedom and slowly, Rasmussen begins to question the reason behind an endeavour prioritising revenge over forgiveness.
